water flow

I have a 37g. I started with a fluval c4 rated for 75g and a seaclone 100 skimmer. The water flow looked low so i added a old 402 powerhead i had.. Its kicking up alot of sand and bubbles no matter the position. Should i let it run for a day or two? Will the sand finaly settle? Or is it too much for size of tank? Thanks

Is it a powerhead or a circulation pump? You wanna use a circulation pump because with a PH you will get a lot of splashing (salt creep) and lots of micro bubbles in your tank...plus not nearly as many options as the circulation pump
